Could This Be The Best Drugstore Mascara Ever?

You’ve heard the names before.  They are on every Beauty Editors’ Best Mascara List : Chanel Intense, Diorshow Iconic, and one of our favorites, Benefit They’re Real. At upwards of $20, these are safe choices when money is not an object. But, there is a new name popping up on these Best Of Lists and it won’t break the bank. Coming in at under $10, L’OREAL BUTTERFLY INTENZA is AMAZING! For us, it is the best drugstore brand ever.  The video above is a review by Beauty Vlogger and Blogger, Joanna Brooks.  Her You Tube Channel is here. Her Blog, Joanna Brooks is here. (Check her out. It’s harder than you might think to find a You Tube Beauty Personality over the age of 20.)

For those of us who need more help than even the best mascara offers, there is hope. Starting as a glaucoma drug,( in use since 2001 in eye drop form under the name Lunigan) LATISSE was born when eye doctors and patients starting noticing longer, lusher eyelashes appearing as a surprising effect from continued use of the drug. LATISSE is applied nightly along the lash line of the upper lashes with a disposable lash brush.  Before long you will see results like these:


LatisseAt 16 weeks:



“As the treatment progresses, you’ll first begin to see changes in length. Then, gradually, you’ll notice more thickness and darkness in your lashes. If you’re satisfied with your results by week 8, don’t stop there. Stick with the treatment. After week 16, you’ll see the full effect of LATISSE® solution — and so will others. After that, you can talk to your doctor about ongoing use.”

A 16 week treatment costs around $120.  However, did you know that you can earn points toward Latisse when you buy your Botox or Juvaderm treatments?  You can also earn points when you shop online at participating retailers through the Brilliant Distinctions Program.  A Brilliant Distinctions account, it’s like a bank account for beauty!
